I respect you for your experience but when it comes to something as simple as this, I can't see why your view, which is different from everyone else's, is infallible.

I find that hard to believe, considering your lack of respect for music theory.

As I said I've met and ignored lounge musos like you many times down the years.

Then you are ignorant and are limiting what you can accomplish. (And don't say a shitty run-down bar gig is accomplishment.)

You will just wake up one day and wonder why you spent so much time practising,

No, I won't.

you only become a musician when you are performing

Wrong. You become a musician from work and practice and studying. Performing is a result of all of that.

you learn your theory at home and put it into practise on stage as I did.

You learn theory whenever and however you can.

You may think that you are a good player but that is just your opinion,

Oh, I have reason to believe that I am a good player, not from just my opinion, but from numerous recording engineers and people in the music scene.

praise from recognised musicians is what counts, and I don't mean Lounge/Garage musuos I mean gigging musos.

You just keep thinking that.

Just about everyone (key phrase "just about") says "Dominants everywhere" and you say "Very few dominants." I read them.

EDIT: I recommend someone closes this before it turns everyone against everyone else.
Looking for my India/Django.
